The New York Jets have signed former Houston Texans kicker Randy Bullock ahead of Thursday night’s game against the Buffalo Bills, the team announced Tuesday.

The signing comes just one day after kicker Nick Folk was ruled out for four to six weeks with a quad injury. He was placed on injured reserve by the Jets on Tuesday. Folk sustained the quad injury during warm-ups on Sunday, telling reporters after the game that he “felt a little pop.”

Punter Ryan Quigley handled the place-kicking duties in New York’s win against the Jacksonville Jaguars with Folk as the holder. Quigley was a perfect 4 for 4 on extra point attempts, and did not attempt a field goal. He also handled the kickoff duties.

Bullock was a fifth round selection by the Houston Texans out of Texas A&M in 2012. He was 56 for 70 on field goal attempts and a perfect 66 for 66 on extra points the past two seasons for the Texans after spending his rookie year on injured reserve.

The Jets (5–3) will host the Bills (4–4) on Thursday night at MetLife Stadium.
